YWRC named Bank of America Neighborhood Champion


Bank of America has named the Young Women’s Resource Center as its 2022 Neighborhood Champion for its work to lower economic barriers and advance economic opportunity. According to a news release, YWRC will receive a $50,000 grant and an opportunity to engage in leadership training with experts in the nonprofit sector. YWRC will use the grant funding to develop its next strategic plan to guide the organization’s work throughout the community. “The funding from Bank of America will help YWRC to understand critical service gaps in the community and implement new initiatives to address those needs and reach additional people in the area,” Kari Zimmerman, executive director of YWRC, said in the release. “We will be able to hire an experienced consultant to help guide us through the process of creating a high-quality strategic plan aimed at increasing the number of participants served and yielding positive outcomes for youth.” Bank of America also awarded grants to eight nonprofits across the state, including Evelyn K. Davis Financial Empowerment Center, Mid-Iowa Health Foundation, Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities, Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity, Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity, Neighborhood Finance Corp., Polk County Housing Trust Fund and Iowa Historical Foundation.
